Efile Association of Canada – Celebrating 25 Years

Formed in 1993, the EAC/ATC is a federally registered non-profit corporation, representing tax practitioners from all regions of Canada to senior management of the Canada Revenue Agency, Federal and Provincial Ministries of Revenue, as well as tax software providers.

Our membership consists of professionals and fully represents the Efile industry: from sole proprietors to large nationwide firms.  EAC/ATC members account for over one-third of all EFILED T1s in Canada.

What we do

One of the core functions of the EAC/ATC is to communicate directly with senior management of the CRA on behalf of members. As your conduit to the CRA, we meet regularly with senior managers of the CRA to discuss tax policy and administrative issues that affect all tax practitioners.

Over the years, the EAC/ATC has been successful in requesting changes to the EFILE system to facilitate the operation of a tax practice. Tax practitioners are the front line administrators of Canadian tax policy, and we are recognized as the professional association that senior management of the CRA turn to for industry comment and feedback.

We also produce and distribute our IMPACT Newsletter (published 3 times a year), providing important updates on developments within the tax and EFile service industry.  View a sample IMPACT Newsletter in the Library section of our website.  Previous editions of the IMPACT Newsletter are archived in the Library section and are available to EAC/ATC members.

Members also receive a copy of the annual EAC/ATC Tax Reference Booklet, a helpful guide for tax practitioners.

The EAC/ATC is governed by a national 15 member Board of Directors elected by the membership of the EAC/ATC at the Annual General Meeting. Members of the Board of Directors serve renewable 3-year terms.
